Details
-------------------------

Created originally for (I believe) Borg Incursion, and again used in Art of War, I decided to rework Achilles' version of the Romulan Starbase. I wanted to make it bigger, I wanted it to have more windows, and I wanted it to look more defined.

I started this by stripping each section down individually, I then edited / textured each section and then put the whole thing back together. In addition, I've also used parts of other models (ones that Achilles had worked on for Borg Incursion and Art of War) and connected them to this Starbase to further define it.

Once done, I regrouped everything, applied the completed texture sets, re-created the lightmaps, and exported the model ready for use within Zero Hour; now for use as a stand-alone / replacment Starbase.
